The University of Virginia Rotunda, designed by Thomas Jefferson and constructed between 1822 and 1826, is a building on campus that has become an icon for the University. When UVA decided to restore the deck, they divided the project into four phases. Martin Horn was awarded the contract for the first phase of the project, and we successfully negotiated the remaining three phases. The project required removing all the soapstone deck material, putting waterproofing and flashing down, installing new drains, and then relaying the deck. The marble railings were carefully taken apart, numbered, cleaned and reinstalled.
